"We're Going to Ibiza!" is a song by Dutch Eurodance group the Vengaboys. It was released in August 1999 as the sixth and final single from The Party Album. Based on Typically Tropical's 1975 number-one hit "Barbados", the song reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in September 1999, becoming the group's second and most recent number-one single there. Outside the UK, the song also reached number one in the group's native Netherlands and became a top 5 hit in Flemish Belgium, Norway, and Sweden.

Content[edit]

The song is infamous for the mis-pronunciation of "Ibiza" by the vocalists in the title line. The pronunciation used in the song is very common in Dutch, however.

Music video[edit]

The video features the members of the Vengaboys, depicted as animated characters, traveling to Ibiza while passing by many places including Rome and Moscow. The opening scene is at Toronto's city hall. Incidentally, in the video, the Washington D.C. snapshot showcases the Clinton-Lewinsky Incident. It can be found 1:40 into the video and lasts for about 4 seconds.
